    Daily itinerary

    Day 1 - Fly from Reykjavík to the Westfjords

    The Westfjords, renown for its incredible landscapes and picturesque fjords.

    Your first day of this 5-day tour will see you fly from Iceland's capital city, Reykjavík, to the small coastal village of Bíldudalur. 

    From here, you will head out to explore Patreksfjörður village in the south part of the Westfjords. Patreksfjörður is famed for its rich fishing waters, its dramatic landscapes and its proximity to some of the most beautiful attractions found not just in the Westfjords, but in the whole of Iceland. 

    That evening, you will dine on a delicious dinner and stay accommodation in the area. 

    Day 2 - The Grand West of the Westfjords

    Iceland is the breeding grounds for 60% of the world's Atlantic Puffins.

    You'll start the second day of your Westfjords sightseeing tour with a spot of breakfast in Patreksfjörður before heading out to the nearby tourist destination, the Látrabjarg bird cliffs.

    Látrabjarg is the westernmost tip of both Iceland and continental Europe. These towering cliff faces are utilised the nesting grounds for an eclectic list of seabird species, including Puffins, Guillemots and Skuas. Thanks to the lack of hunting at Látrabjarg, it is widely considered to be the best spot for photographing Puffins in the earth. 

    After Látrabjarg, you will head to the stunning red sands of Rauðisandur beach. Here, you can marvel over the surrounding mountainscapes, as well as the many kaleidoscopic shades of the sand drifts. You'll finish your day by partaking in the "Fish & Dine Adventure: Panoramic Sea Angling" where you can have your catch for dinner!

    Day 3 - Southern and Central Westfjords

    The series of waterfalls known as Dynjandi are also referred to as Fjallfoss.

    Today, you'll be exploring the southern and central sections of the Westfjords. This will include stops at the gorgeous Tálknafjörður fjord, the mysterious settlement of Selárdalur and the "Crown of the Westfjords", the Dynjandi series of waterfalls.

    Your third day also sees you taking a more in-depth look at Bíldudalur village, as well as the charming town of Þingeyri. Once again, this is a day packed with incredible sights and sounds and unforgettable attractions. 

    In the evening, you will eat dinner and stay in accommodation in the nearby area. 

    Day 4 - Northern Westfjords

    Travelling around the Westfjords, you will be amazed by the wealth of natural splendor on offer.

    Your fourth and final day of this incredible sightseeing tour sees you discovering the magical natural attractions found in the northern part of the Westfjords. This includes seeing the famed "Fisherman’s Village", an excellent spot to learn more about the history of the region, the town of Ísafjörður and, as an added bonus, the bird island of Vigur.

    In the town of Ísafjörður, you will have a final dinner where you can bid farewell to your guide before boarding a plane back to Reykjavík.
